Black men, White woman.. Why we have it all wrong.

Its come to my attention on the inter-webs that recently there has been a lot of talk about Black Men using White Woman as a some sort of symbol of success. Your man get's to a certain status and "he's gon' leave yo' ass fo' a white girl" (Kanye West). But I think there are a few misleading details and don't get me started on how politically incorrect this all is. There really is much to be said about this utterly misleading stereotype and I just wanted to clear some things up. Im gonna make this quick. Firstly, the rappers and actors and athletes that American TV will have you thinking are some of the richest people in the world really dont make shit. Lets face it, media makes them famous but fame doesn't equal money, so already we have this skewed sense of success through exposure. Also, we can't judge what we can't see so most of the ACTUAL rich people who AREN'T in entertainment are not photographed with their primarily BLACK wives walking down the street by paparazzi. So I have compiled some photos of some of THE RICHEST BLACK MEN in the WORLD and their wives. Enjoy.

Starting with someone we all know and love or hate, Sean Combs. Although P.Diddy has a strong hand in entertainment, he is RICH because of his many business ventures. But lets be clear, he still makes 1/32nd of what the richest black man on this list makes. His long time gf Kim Porter may not be his wife but is the mother of most of his children and is obviously a ride or die chick.
Robert L. Johnson founder of BET was married to Shelia Johnson for over 30 years. They're divorced now, but while he was making those big bucks, he had the strength and encouragement of a strong black woman with him all that time.  

Mo Ibrahim and his wife Hania Ibrahim are BOTH millionaires. Mo, who is actually a billionaire made his money through an African mobile phone company and philanthropy.  
Patrice Motsepe and wife Precious Makgosi Moloi. Patrice is a mining BILLIONAIRE. 

Mike Adenuga-BILLIONAIRE. His wife, Titi Adenuga.

This really is the short list, but I wanted you to get an understanding of something. A real woman, one who stands by your side and helps you to achieve your goals and her own, a woman who is understanding, supportive and CHALLENGING-THOSE are the trophy wives. Those are the women who are WORTH something. And these women come in all shapes, sizes and COLORS. Don't let the media and trifflin' fools make you think you aren't worthy. And that's in all cases, not just this one. Speaking of cases-I rest mine.
